Sexual violence is a scourge in our society. Our University should and will be leading the discussion on how this scourge can be eliminated. We are grateful to students who have highlighted the issue. However, any discussion regarding rape and rape culture must take place in light of the rights and values enshrined in our Constitution, and with due respect for the rule of law which includes the principles of natural justice.
